Note: The Impact A Lockout Could Have On Rick Nash’s Future Stats

In the Toronto Globe and Mail, Rory Macgregor wonders how a lockout would impact the careers, stat lines, and Hall of Fame chances of some veteran players.

He notes that Brendan Shanahan was passed over from being a first ballot Hall of Famer this year and that the 2004-05 season robbed him of a potential productive season that could have landed him in the Hall this year.

Macgregor also notes that the season before the lockout Rick Nash scored 41 goals and won a share of the Rocket Richard Trophy and that during the lockout he had 46 points in 44 games in Switzerland.

In his career, Nash, 28, has 289 goals and 258 assists in 674 games.
